Did you get a chance to check out my new Red Beans, Kale & Sun-dried Tomato Stew recipe that I posted yesterday? I took a bowl to work yesterday to reheat for lunch. Even better the next day! I hope you try it!
Last week a colleague overheard me talking about being a vegan. She asked if I had been to The Oneness-Fountain-Heart restaurant, just a few miles from campus . I had never heard of it. She is not vegan, but she is kosher and she highly recommended it. I went the next day.
I love Queens. Little gems like this on the corner. Who knows how many times I passed it?
An adorable, bright restaurant, just before the lunch crowd started picking up.
We were handed a juice menu (yes!) and the lunch menu.
I started with the Super Spirulina.
(My friend enjoyed the ginger cooler.)
The menu includes an image of a cow if it is vegan.
I started with a very basic, fresh, summer vegetable soup.
Before the server brought the soup he came to the table to confirm that I was vegan. “Yes,” I said. “Good,” he said, “I will bring you the vegan butter.” Nice! It was a hot day but the soup was refreshing and that crusty bread? Fantastic.
Next up: the Thai “Chicken” Wrap.
So, so good! I often find faux meat heavy but this was lightly prepared and the crisp vegetables were the exact right combo for the wrap.
There were vegan options on the dessert menu, too,
but even I have my limits. I had to go back to work and function, so I passed.
The restaurant, the food, the service (and the wonderful conversations with our server and the manager) all exceeded my expectations. I have a feeling I will become a regular.
